After reading another review I was somewhat reluctant to try this thing out.

The software that comes with device (M-crew server) also does not use the playlists in ITunes, but I need to generate my own.

Instead, Sony tech support sent me a link to Sony's press release website and suggested I search there for an answer.

The hardware looks great. Config from the unit itself (getting it on the network both wired and wireless) worked like a charm.

The included software is junk. I installed it on both Vista and XP machines. After spending hours playing with it trying to get it to import my music, firewall settings etc. etc, I could never get the hardware to connect to my server. I hooked the PC to the same switch as the TD-NC1 and it still would not connect the server. The included manual / troubleshooting guide is also a joke/junk.

You should be able to install the software and it should just work. I thought I'd be playing music in a few minutes -- instead I invested an afternoon --> and it still isn't working.

I am returning this unit and will use an airport express/i-tunes to do the same thing.

As with almost anything with Sony lately, software just SUCKS! and it's very expensive for what you get.

It's a shame Sony can't pay for good software designers that should complement their products and as stated in other reviews of Sony products owned and reviewed by me, they just don't listen!

Sony, can you please?

- Add Video Support, no just audio.
- Fire your software designers and hire new ones capable of designing good software and make it available for people like me that bought this very expensive and good very good looking electronic paper weight?

As on the title, this is a very good idea which just does not works! just like the listening aid devices Sony people use that acts more like a noise cancellation buddies...

If you're like me, you'll probably buy it even when reading all this reviews... believe me, i did exactly that but, until Sony update it's crappy software my only advice to you is just don't waste your money with this....

I bought this so i could stream my iTunes to my entertainment system, while i work during the day. My Sony home theatre has a DigitalMedia Port, so it all seemed like the perfect fit.

Here are the problems:

- Its tiny! Too small to read the display from my sofa 5ft away. Plus the display is not bright enough, and there is no brightness control.
- Does not work when my laptop has the Cisco VPN service running. I use VPN's all day for work, so this means i couldn't use this product while working.
- Doesn't work with iTunes despite what the website claims. Sure, it can find your songs in the iTunes directory, but you have to install a clunky Sony M-server software to manage your music (eg. create your playlists over again)... and i hate having to do things twice. I thought it would let iTunes stream to it, like you can do with appleTV or Apple airPort. But that is not the case... it DOESN'T work WITH iTunes (just alongside it).
- Wireless was not stable. Seems like my internet connectivity dropped out anytime i tried to have it connect to my router. Big pain. Spent 2 days trying to make it all work together.
- Not good support from the Sony support team. The regular support people don't know anything about it (since its mostly WiFi problems), and will refer you to the special team for it... but they only work in the mornings Eastern Time, which is not really convenient when UPS bring it to you on a Pacific Time afternoon.

I returned this item, and have since bought an appleTV, which is super easy to setup, and much nicer display (actually displays on your TV screen). Plus the apple TV can also cache music, movies etc, so i don't have to worry about VPN problems.

Don't but this... get an appleTV instead. Or maybe even the iPod dock for the Sony DMP... might work better than trying to stream from your laptop.

After reading another review I was somewhat reluctant to try this thing out. I suppose when I spoke to a Sony rep over the phone and he knew nothing of this thing's existence that should have been my wakeup call. Upon installing in Vista I encountered a crash of the software. A second install attempt seemed to work. The Mcrew server software would periodically fatally crash after that. I was never able to get the Adapter cube to sync with the computer even after totally disabling antivirus and firewall. This thing is totally counterintuitive and is anything but plug-and-play. Never was able to get it working. Be warned.

I bought this to to stream music through out my house using my wireless network. The product is hard to set up, and even more of a pain to use. Like everything Sony, it only works with the supplied Sony program/opperating system. I sent the item back and and purchased a Linksys WMB54G 802.11g Wireless-G Music Bridge for $45. It works great and is compatible with everything. Don't waste a buck fifty on the Sony.
